The HBO original series Game of Thrones may have just wrapped up its insane season 7 finale, but we predict the show will be HUGE in another way this fall. We think that costumes replicated after your favorite GOT characters will be your go-to Halloween look come Oct. 31. Which character should you be, though? There are so many to choose from—I mean, seven kingdoms worth. We think going with a member from the House of Targaryen is the perfect choice. I mean, who can really pass up going as Emilia Clarke’s Daenerys Targaryen? With just a few simple pieces you can create an amazing Game of Thrones Daenerys Targaryen Halloween costume, that’s also super affordable.
First, you’ll need to recreate Daenerys’ to-die-for hair. If you luck out, blondes can simply curl and braid their hair into a half up hairstyle to achieve this iconic look. But if you don’t have the same curly blonde braided locks as Daenerys, then you can go the wig route. While it will cost you some cash, buying this wig can save you major time when doing your hair. So, you can say goodbye to tons of hairspray and hello to 15 extra minutes to become your own version of Daenerys.
Mother of Dragons Wig ($26.99)
Daenerys’ look is really one you can dress up or dress down. You can also recreate her outfits from the hit HBO show in a ton of different ways. This particular suede dress from Express gives off the same princess vibes, and as an extra bonus, you could totally wear this for a night out after Halloween is over. It even comes in two colors, so you can opt for an all-brown costume or this black dress to switch it up a bit.
Faux Suede Skater Dress ($50.99)
Now, let’s focus on the legs. Daenerys is often covered from head to toe in different fabrics. You can wear the suede skater dress with a pair of black or brown tights. And if Halloween is a chillier night, you can absolutely switch out tights for leggings so that you stay nice and warm. Keep in mind that you should go for opaque tights or leggings to really nail the Daenerys Halloween costume.
Women’s Microfiber Tights ($14.99)
You should shop for these Steven Madden combat boots so you can have some practical shoes for Halloween night that also capture Daenerys’ look. The best part about these shoes is that you can wear them well into the fall and winter. You can’t go wrong with adding another pair of combat boots to your closet!
Steve Madden Troopa ($79.95)
Combining these four items can really make your friends do a double take when you walk into the Halloween party. If it’s anything like the HBO fan favorite series, then your costume is sure to be a complete success. So, get ready to channel your inner princess vibes before heading out the door on Halloween night.
